Twelve Dead After Mass Shooting At California Bar's College Student Night

A survivor of the shooting that claimed at least 12 lives in California on Thursday has given a harrowing account of the moment the shooter opened fire.

Authorities brought in a mental health specialist who concluded that Long could not be involuntarily committed for psychiatric observation but anxious the 28-year-old Marine veteran might have post-traumatic stress disorder. There were rumors Long suffered from PTSD.

Witnesses said he wore something like a ski mask as he opened fire in the packed club at around 11.20pm on Wednesday evening.

Investigators have not established a motive for the shooting or an indication of any connection to terrorism and knew of nothing that connected Long to the Borderline Bar and Grill. "People come back and it's a awful thing, they come back and are never the same", he said. The dead included 11 people inside the bar and a veteran sheriff's sergeant who was the first officer through the door.

The patrolman dragged his injured colleague out, but he died the following morning in a Californian hospital.

Tel Orfanos lived through the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history only to lose his life in another one less than 10 minutes from his home barely a year later, a tragic coincidence that has devastated his friends and family. "I don't want prayers. He didn't come home last night", said his mother, Susan Orfanos.

Reports soon emerged that some at Borderline had survived the massacre at the Route 91 Harvest festival in October 2017, when a gunman killed 58 and injured hundreds more in the deadliest shooting in modern USA history.

"He said Helus was on the phone with his wife when he got the report of the shooting and he told her, "'Hey, I have to go.

Thomas, who has known Orfanos since they were in high school, said her friend didn't talk much about his experience in Vegas. Tim McGraw and Faith Hill called for stricter gun control.

Long served in the Marines as a machine gunner for five years between 2008 and 2013, during which time he was decorated with 10 medals and toured Afghanistan. "I already didn't wish it on anybody to begin with for the first time", Kelly said outside his home in Thousand Oaks.

People run from the Route 91 Harvest country music festival after gun fire was heard, October 1, 2017 in Las Vegas.

About 18 months ago, Don and Effie MacLeod heard "an bad argument" and what he believes was a gunshot from the Longs' property.

Police said hundreds were inside when the shooting occurred.

"It would start and then it would stop and then it would get really loud and I hear this shouting".

"He was just a great guy, a gentle soul", Buschow said.

Thousand Oaks, a leafy, sprawling suburb, was named the third-safest city in the United States for 2018 by the website Niche.
